Re: Request for Expressions of Interest for Strategic Planning Facilitator

West Moberly and Saulteau First Nations own and operate the non-profit organization: Nîkanêse Wah tzee Stewardship Society (“NWSS”). NWSS was established in 2017 with a goal of protecting and restoring caribou habitat and caribou populations throughout Treaty No. 8 territory within British Columbia through implementation of caribou recovery activities. NWSS’ objective is to restore caribou distributions and populations so that they might one day sustain a meaningful traditional harvest by members of Saulteau, West Moberly and other adherents to Treaty No. 8.

Purpose & Objectives: NWSS is inviting interested facilitators to submit an expression of interest (“EOI”) to plan and facilitate a strategic planning session for the NWSS. Following the session, the facilitator would produce strategic plan identifying 1-, 3- and 5-year goals to facilitate continued, strategic operations of the NWSS (the “Strategic Plan”).

Qualifications and Experience: We are seeking a professional or team who is committed to a collaborative relationship with NWSS. Desired credentials, capabilities, and qualifications include:

Interested parties are requested to submit their EOI by email to Tamara Dokkie, Interim Executive Director,
Information provided in the EOI by interested parties should include:

Conflict of Interest:
Respondents are asked to disclose in their EOI any actual or potential conflicts of interest and existing business relationships they may have with NWSS, Saulteau or West Moberly.

Submission deadline:
As this may be the only posting to submit an EOI, interested respondents should provide their response via email by 4:00 pm on March 15, 2023. Any response received after this date may not be considered.

Additional Information
